Apamon of Toukh
He was from the city of Toukh, the diocese of Banha.
The Angel Michael appeared to him and commanded him to go to Ansena and confess Christ. He went
and confessed the Lord Christ before Eukhius, the governor. He tortured him much with the press (the
wheel), red-hot iron bed, and by whipping him with whips. Then he cast him in a hot water cauldron. In
all that, the Lord strengthened and raised him up sound. He was worthy for the Lord Christ to appear
to him, and promised him the Kingdom of Heaven. This Saint performed many signs and miracles.
When they cut off his head he received the crown of martyrdom. St. Julius El-Akfahasi was present,
took his body, shrouded it with costly shrouds and sent his body with two of his men to his hometown.
May his prayers be with us. Amen.
